SUPPORT GROUPS

Support groups offer the opportunity to validate one’s experiences; women can share strategies for coping and provide encouragement to one another; talking to other women with similar experiences can be extremely helpful in understanding one’s own feelings; building a community for support and friendship.

In our groups, we are able to mother the mother. These groups can be a much-needed place to de-stress and find a community that understands your experiences. Postpartum groups also provide us the opportunity to assess and monitor the well-bring of our members.

Available groups include, but may not be limited to:

Coping with Loss group, New Moms support group, Breastfeeding Sucks support group, Working Moms group and Pregnancy support group.
